Historical A-Bomb Video Showing Troops Marched Into Hot Zone

Historical NUCLEAR EXPLOSION footage!

(A controlled scientific test detonation – NOT real combat.)

[It’s unbelievable, the way that they marched these soldiers through the perimeter of the blast zone.  My uncle went through the same thing at Bikini Atoll, in the “Operation Crossroads” dual test, but he was on deck for the second test (underwater), where he was hit by radioactive rain.
This latest video is remarkable in its originality, where the cameraman had a perspective at the base of the smoke column, looking up.  Amazing.]

North Dakota Becomes First State To Legalize the Arming of Drones By Police

North Dakota becomes first US state to legalise use of armed drones by police

It is unclear whether local police departments will use weaponised devices, even though they are technically legal

web-drone-getty.jpgArmed drones could be used by police in the US state of North Dakota after local lawmakers legalised their use.

While they will be limited to “less than lethal” weapons, tear gas, tasers, rubber bullets and pepper spray could all be used in theory by the remote controlled flying machines.

In a classic case of unintended consequences, the original sponsor, Republican state representative Rick Becker said he was unhappy with the way legislation turned out.

His original intention was to prevent law enforcement officials from using the unmanned aerial vehicles from conducting surveillance on private property without a warrant.

“In my opinion there should be a nice, red line: Drones should not be weaponised,” he said.

The original draft of the House Bill 1328 said: “A state agency may not authorize the use of, including granting a permit to use, an unmanned aircraft armed with any lethal or non-lethal weapons, including firearms, pepper spray, bean bag guns, mace, and sound-based weapons.”

However, the state’s police union amended the Bill, limiting the ban to only lethal weapons, meaning that sounds cannons or rubber bullets could be used on police drones, according to The Daily Beast.

Mr Becker said that he didn’t fight the amendments, telling the Arstehnica website that he wanted “the Bill to pass to at least require warrants.”

However, he said that he will aim to change the law in two-years’ time when North Dakota’s House of Representatives returns to session.

It is unclear whether local police departments will use weaponised drones, even though they are technically legal.

Police officers are subject to local and departmental rules that can substantially limit what tactics are allowed.

However, at least 39 people have been killed by police tasers in 2015, according to The Guardian.

The fact that a suspect could potentially be tasered by an officer sitting hundreds of miles away will likely add to the concerns of those who are worried about the militarisation of US police departments.

Concerns were raised following events in Ferguson, Missouri, where mostly peaceful protests over the killing by a police officer of black man Michael Brown were met over several nights by lines of body-armoured police brandishing automatic weapons, and in some cases riding mine-resistant military-style vehicles.

It prompted President Barack Obama to ordered a comprehensive review of policies that have encouraged police departments across the United States to acquire ever greater quantities of military kit that was once the reserve of professional soldiers last month.

Brit Press Gives Publicity To 9/11 Investigation At Univ. Alaska

Were 9/11 towers blown up by bombs?

University probes if planes REALLY were responsible

IT IS one of the world’s biggest conspiracy theories – that the west was involved in plotting, organising, and even carrying out the 9/11 terror atrocities to provide the grounds for the military strikes on the so-called Axis of Evil.

The Twin Towers were hit by planes but conspiracy theorists claim bombs brought them down.

The Twin Towers were hit by planes but conspiracy theorists claim bombs brought them down.

While many of the theories are bizarre, one longstanding view is the towers would not have collapsed in the way they did if they were hit by aircraft.

Some claim there must have been a “controlled detonation” at ground level for the Twin Towers to fall in on themselves as they did.

One key part of their argument is the collapse of a third smaller tower, called Building 7, at the World Trade Centre complex, several hours after the huge skyscrapers fell.

Until now, the theory has been just that and confined to the online forums of conspiracy theory websites.

But now, the University of Alaska is sponsoring a full investigation into claims that World Trade Center Building 7 was brought down by a controlled demolition during the 9/11 attacks.

The official version of events is that fire spread to Building 7, from the main towers, devastating the structure, and causing it also to fall in on itself.

Footage of the tower consumed by fire emerged in 2011, and it was thought the conspiracy may have been killed off.

But Dr J Leroy Husley, chair of the University of Alaska Fairbanks’ (UAF) Civil and Environmental Engineering Department, has partnered with architects and engineers linked to campaign group 9/11 Truth to evaluate the causes of its collapse (WTC 7 Evaluation).

A report on Activistpost.com said: “Although questions still remain about how the two planes that hit the Twin Towers could cause the total collapse of the high-rise buildings, many 9/11 researchers now focus on the mysterious collapse of Building 7.

“A number of 9/11 family members point to the collapse of WTC7 as a possible crack in the official story that could spark a new national conversation on the events of that day.

“WTC7 was not hit by a plane that day; however, it collapsed at 5:20 p.m. according to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the official cause for the collapse was office fires.

“A growing number of family members, activists, architects and engineers question the official theory for collapse and are seeking a new investigation into WTC7.”

Dr Hulsey and the WTC7 Evaluation project hope to answer some of the remaining questions.

The project is a two-year study that is being crowd-funded through Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth.

Dr Hulsey has invited professionals from the fields of structural engineering, civil engineering, mechanical engineering, architecture, building design and construction, physics, maths, and science, as well as everyday citizens, to get involved.

He said: “Over the next year, with a team of PhD students, I will be rebuilding World Trade Center building 7, using the same drawings that were used to build it originally we will reconstruct it digitally.

“NIST says the building fell down due to office fires. Our investigation will evaluate the probability that this was the cause of the collapse.”

The researchers have promised a “completely open and transparent investigation into the cause of World Trade Center Building 7’s collapse”, and will post every step of their scientific process onWTC7Evaluation.org.

The WTC7 Evaluation project will also include a review by a committee of technical experts who will vet the research being conducted by Dr Hulsey and his students.

The professor and his team are soliciting financial support from the public from now until the completion of the study in April 2017.

Ted Walter, Director of Strategy and Development for A&E 9/11 Truth, is in charge of working with the professor and raising money to fund the WTC7 Evaluation.

He said: “They are coming up with different scenarios of how hot the fires could have been in different parts of the building, and then for the next six months they will be running tests and scenarios.

“The last few months, early next year, will be all about putting the findings into a final report.”

The team want the final report published in peer-reviewed engineering journals.

Mr Walter added: “We hope to gain significant traction in the engineering community by providing an authoritative refutation of NIST’s report, by showing that there is no way that fires could have brought down building 7.”

He also wants the report “given to every member of Congress”.
